Subject: Ocamlyacc questions
I'm evaluating ocamlyacc for a compiler implementation, and I was
hoping to get help with two questions.  Here is a very simple ocamlyacc
grammar file:

%{
  (* A simple ocamlyacc file for demonstration. *)
%}

%token <unit> PROGRAM 
%token <string> IDENTIFIER

%start program

%%
program	: PROGRAM IDENTIFIER {} IDENTIFIER PERIOD {} ;
%%

This has two errors:

1. The action {} after the first identifier causes an error.  Does
ocamlyacc not support actions before the last token?  How would I work
around this?

2. When the action from #1 is removed, I get an error message, 
    "no type has been declared for the start symbol"
    but changing '%start program' to '%start <type> program' where type
    is int, unit, etc. causes a syntax error.  Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
